ok… I have some news.. I finally have all set up and it will be an all inclusive website. It will showcase my portfolio and a blog all in one location. I’m very excited about it.. I finally have something set up that I really really like and am proud to call me own and put my name on it.

So.. please go over to the new link and tell me what you think about it. I will try to bring all the posts on here over to the other site so I won’t lose them. We’ll see how that goes.

so.. this will be the last post and at some point I will shut this down.. please visit me at

Today I received a couple of lenses in the mail. I wish I could say they are ones that I was able to purchase but alas I cannot. I rented them! I couldn’t believe you can rent lenses.. I know a few photographers who do and only recently just found that out. What a great way to test drive lenses before buying them. I rented two for the wedding I’m shooting this weekend and I now feel really really good about shooting it knowing I have a couple of great lenses for my low light shooting.

I also was able to purchase some great textures at Flypaper Textures. I’ve been trying to make my own but finally decided that my time is very valuable and since I’m not really great at photoshop it would be easier and less maddening to purchase some really cool ones.. and wouldn’t make my checking account sad.

So here are two from the new borrowed lenses and a couple of textures as well.. more to come!

Also stay tuned for the new and improved website for Laurie O’Neil photography.

Now off to eat some yummy cookies I made today to be washed down with a big glass of milk..

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came –
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
